CRUISES. Passengers of a cruise ship, The Azamara Quest, on fire endured tense moments when smoke crept through their doors during dinner and the engines went dead. But a hardworking crew that managed to fight the flames and barbecue parties on the deck kept spirits high after the luxury vessel spent a day adrift in Philippine waters, the Associated Press reports.
The Azamara Quest safely reached a Malaysian port with 1,000 people aboard Monday. Its passengers voiced relief that their experience hadn’t been as harrowing as what happened to other accident-hit cruise liners this year.
Diane Becker Krasnick of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, says “everybody was joyous that they were alive”, AP reports.
